In Part 1 we checked out what other sewists were doing, now why not look a little wider for colour palette inspiration?
Flickr by colour
MultiColr Search Labs is a genius site that lets you search Flickr by colourscheme. Just drag up to 5 colours onto the palette and it will come up with a gorgeous mosaic of coordinating photos.
Above you can see what it came up with when I searched for pink, red, orange and turquoise.
If even coming up with a colour scheme is beyond your blocked brain, another great site for colour and pattern inspiration is colourlovers.
It’s a site where people upload their colour schemes and patterns, with over a million palettes uploaded and rated by viewers. I love thought provoking, which would be a great palette for my winter wardrobe.
Another great site for fashion inspiration is Design Seeds. I love just browsing through and picking up ideas.
Once I’ve got a few colours in mind, I start to look through patterns and think about what would work.
Where do you get your colour palette inspiration?
